    Rear wheel

    Not sure how to edit posts, otherwise I'd have put these in the original.

    I have this bike:

    Old Cov Eagle, running a 10 speed set-up, (5x2), I have been riding it round E14 in a single speed for a few weeks and its fine, however I would rather remove the problem of gear mech, however I have no idea where to start?

    I have a problem with the rear wheel in that the dish is not centering the wheel. IT runs true, but 1.5cm to the left as you look for the rear.

    I am picking up a 700c wheel at the weekend with a deore hub/cassette, so what can I do to get this running single? Is it just something like this:

    plus a chain, or do I need something else? the drop outs are horizontal, or near as damn it.

    Cheers

    Bonjour!

    I have been procrastinating to a friend in Bristol for a year or so now, that I would convert an old Coventry Eagle frame form the 80's into a single speed, to use whilst I'm living in London for a few months. I like the idea of no gears, so I'm looking for advice on where to start, what and how to do it.

    Cheers

    Lloyd
